Sunday alcohol sales won't be the only thing on the agenda when the Lebanon City Council meets at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 22.

City Administrator John Thomas said the tentative agenda also includes the second reading of annexation ordinances and a discussion of the 2008-09 budget.

Mayor Gary Crenshaw said that the city budget is in good shape, although he added, "It's prudent that we look at the budget."

While city officials know that occupational tax revenues will be down some, Crenshaw said those revenues are still "pretty strong."

Nevertheless, Crenshaw said he wants to work with the city council to identify some expenditures that the city may be able to postpone until later in the fiscal year or the next fiscal year.
